I was lucky enough to see him live in 1980 in Burlington Vermont. One of the great artists of all time. Time Magazine called "Exodus" the most influencial album of the 20th century. His music and message are as relevant today as they were 40 years ago. "Tell The Children The Truth."

For reggae fans, in Community Audio you can find live shows by Peter Tosh, Toots & The Maytals, The Itals, and others. Most are from the 70s and 80s.

Hugely popular hereabouts. I have no idea if people actually know the music or just like posters and T-shirts, but it's everywhere. Yesterday I saw a Bob Marley sticker on a school bus. His smiling visage is all over public buses, taxis, etc. Kind of in an even heat with Che Guevera and cannabis leaves. My son claims to have seen three Jerry t-shirts (on non-tourists), but I can't confirm.

I also share the passion for Marley, he was great, I loved Exodus, I was not please how his music was Americanized by the record companies, if you listen to him live or his early Calypso sound you hear the true Marley sound.

I must concur with Pig Street. However, I am also a huge fan of the band until 1974 when Tosh and Bunny Wailer left the band. Thereafter things got way to electro-popy and watered down.

One of my prized pulls of the year goes to this awesome recording from Ocotber 1973.
